A year ago, I wrote this post. Throughout the year, I thought about it, though admittedly I worked on those goals less as the year went by. God blessed our family tremendously during 2007. Too often I forgot to thank Him. I praise Him for all He's done for me and for so many new revelations.
As I look forward to the rest of this year, (Can you believe January is over??) I think these same goals I had last year are wonderful ones for which I need to continue to strive. I list them again for my constant remembrance:
Learning more about my God
De-cluttering my life
Being a better steward of God's blessings
I'm adding a statement from Bev, that I love. " when you can, where you can, how you can, but help!" I hope to keep this close at heart.
Happy, blessed 2008 to you all!

WFMW: Cleaning fireplace doors

Over the years I have tried m.a.n.y. ways to clean the soot off our glass fireplace doors. We have a wood burning insert so the doors are always closed when we have a fire. (I HATE having an insert. I had rather see, hear, feel and smell the fire than to have the abundant heat an insert supplies.)

When I last purchased a product to clean my glass top stove, I bought Weiman Cook Top for the first time. It worked well for my stove, as has every product I have tried on my stove top. I was reading the directions for use, I happened to notice these words: "Also excellent for cleaning glass fireplace doors". Oh my! It cleaned the soot off quickly, with very little effort.

Currently I have a fireplace candelabra instead of logs in the fireplace. (Did I mention I hate that insert?) It looks pretty with the doors shut or when lit with open doors.

I am so glad I read that one phrase on the back of the bottle of Weiman Cook Top! Head on over to see Shannon for more great Works For Me Wednesday tips!
